Apart form the memorial in the cemetery there is a solitary grave. Does anyone know whom this belongs to? And was he killed during the Battle at Rorke’s Drift. If not why was he buried in the Rorkes Drift cemetery as I thought this was only for those that fell at Rorkes Drift.

Apologies in advance if we have discussed this before.

Hi Dave
I think the grave you are talking about is the grave of James Rorke, the irish man who built Rorkes Drift.

thanks joe

The only other grave within the walled off enclosure is that of a soldier who was drowned when he fell from the pontoon. This took place (I think) in 1883, during the Civil War that followed the Anglo-Zulu War. A garrison was deployed at Rorke's Drift until after pacification in 1888.

Hi Ken. I am right in thinking his name is Pte. Thorn or Thorne.

Correct; Private Thorne, 6th Dragoons. He died on the 25th October 1884.
